As any regular reader of this website would know, in 2016 I had a heart attack. That happened during the last week of June 2016. I can’t pin down the exact day, because I had on and off chest pain several times during that week, and I thought I was experiencing heartburn.
In November 2016 I had a quadruple bypass.
During the months following my bypass, I really started earnestly researching about heart disease, risk factors, alternative diets and such. During my research, I kept hearing about a movie called “The Widowmaker“. It is a documentary about heart disease, and I badly wanted to see it. I searched and searched for a venue where I could see it here in the Philippines where I live but could find nothing – free or paid.
On YouTube, I follow Ivor Cummins. He is an Engineer who is a health advocate, and he has a lot of interesting information about heart disease, high-fat diets and such. Recently he put the movie “The Widowmaker” on his YouTube channel. Cummins is well connected in the health community, so I must assume that he had permission to post this, and I am going to share it here.
There is a LOT of good information in this movie. It is well worth the watch. If I had known everything I learned in this movie, I may have been able to avoid my near-death experience in 2016.
Have a look!
Thank you, Mr. Cummins! I really appreciate being able to see this movie!
